The world is shrinking, immigration is growing and increasingly Australians have assets and families around the world. Estate planers need to understand the risks in managing “global” connections in the estate planning process and this session will cover some of the complexities, including:

  • Identifying that there is a global issue and understanding the consequences.
  • Does dual nationality have a bearing on estate planning issues?
  • Establishing domicile: case study of Re Tang [2017] VSC 59 (and appeal [2017] VSCA 171).
  • What bearing will asset and beneficiary location have on the estate plans?
  • Jurisdictional issues: which route to follow to achieve the greatest benefit?
  • Foreign Wills and International Wills – what is the difference and will these overcome any obstacles?
  • Managing multiple wills and avoiding conflicts between them,
  • What happens where a beneficiary is a foreigner – which law applies to the distribution?
  • The relevance of international conventions and treaties.

Attending a TEN webinar couldn’t be easier. Basically it’s just like attending a seminar except that you don’t have to leave the comfort of your office or home. You just need to be available at the appointed date and time with your computer and internet connection.

Once you’ve registered for the webinar, we send you a link so that you can login to the webinar from your computer. The speaker delivers the session from their computer in real time. Just like a live seminar, you can ask questions of the speaker. You simply type your question into the question box and the speaker responds to it during question time.

At the end of the webinar session we send you a certificate to confirm your attendance and the number of CPD hours you earned.

You will need a computer with sound, an internet connection and earphones if you need to participate in the webinar in an open office environment (so you don’t disrupt those around you).
